Dear Family and Friends,
Michelle and I arrived in Lesotho on Thursday night after an adventurous car ride from Johannesburg. Somehow I managed to get onto a dirt road while trying to find a shortcut. It turned out good though b/c we got to see some wild animals and birds that otherwise we wouldn't have seen on the more traveled hiway.
We got to the house around 7pm to finally meet our new family and see Selloane after missing her for a month. It was a happy occasion for everyone. Now we have been together for a few days and the bonding has begun. Michelle and her sister have had some adventures together in the village and Michelle's eyes are getting opened big time to see where she really comes from.
I am very sorry to say that I am unable to download pics at this internet cafe where I am writing from now. Tomorrow we journey into the mountains and will be out of touch for the next week. When we get back, I will try again to get a computer where I can download pics of my beautiful family. The children are all healthy and happy and really excited to have parents and a new sister. So far, Crazy 8's is the favorite family game....it gets pretty heated and the youngest 2 boys start jumping and dancing on the couch when they win....good times!
Keep us in your thougts and prayers. The process goes on, but I still cannot say when we will return exactly. Hopefully, when we get back from Qacha's Nek, we will get some good news from the lawyer.
Mike and family
